An International educational experience in a breathtaking natural setting

English. German. Ukrainian. Spanish... Just a few of the languages that float down our hallways at St. Gilgen International School (StGIS). Consisting of approximately 40 nationalities, our international community with over 230 students is a diverse fusion of talent and cultural richness. This vibrant blend creates a dynamic learning environment that celebrates the unique perspectives and abilities each student brings to our school.

StGIS is nestled in the heart of the Austrian alps and at the shore of the Wolfgangsee. If you’re familiar with the film ‘The Sound Of Music’, St Gilgen and the Wolfgangsee are featured in the opening scenes. We are just a short drive from the cultural hotspots of Salzburg and Halstatt, and just a few hours from Vienna and Munich.

Our key promise is that every child has talent and we will develop it - so a main focus for us is making sure we provide the ideal environment for students. In order to ensure every student flourishes at StGIS, our philosophy of 'three pillars of excellence' applies to every child - excellence in education, care and activities. This means our highly qualified teachers, pastoral staff and nurses combine to ensure every student's unique talents are discovered, nurtured and developed.

With over 40 activities to choose from - the school treats the world as a classroom and ensures professional guidance is always at hand. For example, a state-approved mountain guide leads hiking expeditions and horse riding lessons are held in a first class stable. Students can also enjoy golf lessons and seasonal sports such as rowing, water skiing, canyoning, skiing, ice skating and climbing. StGIS also has a strong foundation in the Arts and all students have access to professional Art, Theatre, Dance and Music lessons.

A key focus of St Gilgen International School is to instill a love of learning in each student - and the curriculum and modern teaching methods are designed to fuel natural curiosity. Offering the coveted International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma and Middle Years Programme (MYP), StGIS students are equipped to go on to study at the world's best Universities. This is a place where teachers strive to build an energy of relentless curiosity in each classroom and empower young minds to stretch and fulfill their potential.

With school fees in line with the world’s most prestigious educational institutions, StGIS is one of the best investments you can make in your child's future. After experiencing our unique school first-hand, it's absolutely clear that the reward is a magical education that lasts a lifetime.

We would be delighted to invite you on the Path of Excellence. Simply visit us at and let the journey begin!
